Overview

The Porites Coral is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral often referred to as the Jeweled Finger, Jewel, or Finger Coral. While the green or yellow branching form is most common, it is found in a variety of shapes and color forms. When expanded, the polyps of the Porites coral give it a very fuzzy appearance. They are a wonderful addition to a reef aquarium, and its yellow color form adds a uniqueness that not many corals have to offer.

Its behavior is peaceful with only very short tentacles, and can generally be placed closer to other peaceful corals in the reef aquarium. The Porites Coral requires a high light level combined with strong water movement. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

It will benefit from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or other micro-foods in the evening while its tentacles are visible.

This is an excellent coral! I received it in outstanding condition and within five minutes it had already revealed its polyps. I look forward to seeing it grow so I can fragment it and get more beautiful specimens out of it. I'll be sure to order my livestock from you from now on. Thanks for the great order.
